Paul and the Nations

The Old Testament and Jewish Background of Paul's Mission to the Nations with Special Reference to the Destination of Galatians. WUNT 84. T├╝bingen: Mohr-Siebeck, 1995

Just when the North/South Galatia debate seemed permanently locked in stalemate, with the apparent certainty that nothing more could possibly be said on the matter, James M. Scott's Paul and the Nations bravely enters the fray to contribute the provocative proposal that Paul's choice of the term "Galatians" was determined by a Jewish perception of geography based on the Table-of-Nations tradition originating in Genesis 10. Scott's work builds on the premise that Paul learned geography from the Bible (Genesis 1-3; 10; Numbers 34) during his early years of education under Gamaliel in Jerusalem.
